Dear All
Just found these ( stainless ) and they won't fit my Moggie ( 14" wheels ),maybe they were off my Plus2 ( 13" ? ), but hard to tell as I don't have it anymore.. :( , can someone confirm the size/fitment ? )

Thanks
John :wink:

those are NOT original thin OEM trim rings....they are after market thick trim rings, something like Victoria British sells currently. they'll work in a pinch if you have nothing at all, but they hide the normally exposed 1/2 of wheel rim at the outer most edge. The ones you have cover completely to the outside edge.

They look like the ones I used for years which were off my Honda Accord (84?). They worked fine.
